RML strengthens HSEQ with the appointment of new senior leader Matt Davies

Matt Davies – New Head of HSEQ

As we enter a new decade, we are very pleased to welcome Matt Davies, our new Head of Health, Safety, Environment & Quality, to the business to lead our approach to ensuring that Robinson Manufacturing (RML) is always a safe place for our employees.

Matt Davies joins us with substantial experience and the relevant qualifications gained in high profile public and manufacturing sector roles.

RML’s CEO, Simon Kidney explains the thought process behind this important new appointment to the Senior Leadership Team:

“Over the last four years, RML has expanded from 3 factories in the central belt of the UK to eight across the country. At the same time, we have extended our manufacturing landscape to include timber frames as well as trusses and joists,” he said, giving some background to the appointment. “The safety and wellbeing of our staff is absolutely central to our success as we expand, and Matt’s role is key to ensuring that the risks associated with manufacturing are effectively managed. His leadership will drive the safety culture firmly into every niche of the business as we continue to grow”

A key part of Matt’s role will be to ensure complete legal compliance and manage companywide attitudes to Health & Safety. With a proven track record in people management and IOSH training qualifications, he also plans to educate and coach employees from all 8 of our sites to ensure the Safety culture is fully embedded across the business.

Matt has already visited most of our factories across the country, including in Scotland, to evaluate priorities and strategic objectives for his first six months.

“My approach is always to support individual development and to recognise progress and accomplishment,” Matt explained. “This feels like a perfect fit for RML’s values – to Inspire, Innovate and Deliver and I’m looking forward to working with our teams across the UK to achieve great things!”
